The Future of Online Financial Discussion

George Tsiolis (AGORACOM)
Location: Starlight Roof

AGORACOM is a second-generation financial community that has successfully eliminated epidemic levels of spam, bashing and profanity that plagued first-generation communities.

By rejecting the traditional advertising supported model, which sacrifices quality for page views, implementing an ASP model and entrusting members with monitoring powers, AGORACOM has potentially discovered the future of financial discussion.

George Tsiolis is a graduate of Osgoode Hall Law School and the Founder of AGORACOM, a second-generation financial community that has successfully eliminated epidemic levels of spam, bashing and profanity that plagued first-generation communities.

George accomplished this by rejecting the traditional advertising model, which sacrifices quality for page views. Rather, he created an ASP model for public companies to create a community of shareholders, as well as a wiki-powered “freemium” model for shareholders of non-clients.

The results have crushed the status quo model for financial discussion forums. AGORACOM is generating 7-digit revenues and 6-digit profits from over 80 clients. Most importantly, both public companies and individual investors are extremely happy. Currently, approximately 120,000 unique visitors read 10,000,000 + pages of information every month.

George will be presenting this model at Money:Tech as the future of online financial discussion.
